Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello everyone. I'm studying Mechanical engineering but I'm at Foreign language preparation class. My area is Space and aircraft. I'm studying Aircraft Deisgn (Daniel P. Raymer) and I think Ive to improve myself in physics area. I thought that Feynman lectures on physics can be good start. What is your suggestion? Thank you.

You will need vector calculus to learn this. Start by learning calculus, then practice mechanics. You need to build the foundation first.

That's not how it works. First study calculus, then start doing college-level physics. Or at least, study it at the same time. If you want to have deep insights in physics you'll need mathematics.

Bro, essentially you are right. I mean I will exactly do what you said. But I thought that I can do it with one book. I can do this with feynman. I'm a hardworker and Im trusting myself. I can do it.
